Why dont we send him back to his country,instead of wasting our tax dollars giving him free food andRead More shelter in jail. I wonder how the judge who let him go on his 5th DUI feel now?? More importantly,I want his lawyer's name. I have 2 DUI's under my belt and im working on my 3rd..hik hik

When he gets out again and kills someone...then what? Does our justice system suck that bad? TheRead More last time I was pulled over, state police pulled out a gun and snuck up the side of my car and issued a warning for not having a license plate on the front of my car.

How many people out there are looking over their shoulder , worried the FBI is tracking them aboutRead More some DNA that they left years ago . Sooner or later it will be time to pay up for being a scum bag .

Paul - I am thinking they could be Star Wars action figures. What is it about this Wal Mart thatRead More attracts so much retail theft?
Paul Shafer April 10, 2014 at 11:47 am
Tom - I was thinking more along the lines of body parts, in which case the reported theft is theRead More least of the problems.
Tom Lunde April 10, 2014 at 11:55 am
Man, I'll tell you, this Wal Mart is corrupting and misleading our youth and damaging to ourRead More society. I think Cook County should enact a Wal Mart task force to deal with this issue.

Sound like the Judge set a low bond, that why he was out, even with his past convictions. If peopleRead More only new what low bonds some Judges give out on serious charges, specially in CROOK COUNTY,IL.

I'm not to clear on this story. Did Neito return to the scene of the accident after he ran away andRead More then took a sobriety test? Did he run away again after that? .014 does not sound like much alcohol.

Rico Suave April 6, 2014 at 07:24 pm People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only becauseRead More rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. Remember this Benny G and all you other scum sucking Liberals out there. The police in these ghetto areas are chasing them down every night in an attempt to keep them from coming into your so called safe areas. Appreciate their sacrifices and don't give this white Fucktard the time of day. Hey Kenneth! Love teh comments... Who else would say fucktard on here?
Frank G. April 11, 2014 at 11:50 am
Benny G. I think you hate the police because your dad was a abusive cop who poked you in the assRead More when you were growing up.

Frankala, I was sloppy seconds to your ripe hole. He was a tiger, huh...LOL Donna the residentRead More "split tail" comment bag- Go iron my shirts and STFU...LOL

@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100. Whenever you are speaking to a police officer, you are most likely speaking to someone with an IQ considerably Lower than your own. Please remember to speak slowly, always try to limit the amount of syllables in each word to less than three, and try not to laugh... Cuz They get Really Paranoid. Must be the drugs.
Magilla Gorilla April 12, 2014 at 07:28 am
@ Santaella. Robots, Droids or whatever you want to call 'em. They want programmable individuals whoRead More will NOT hesitate to KILL. At some point, Robocops are coming to your town.

I know parts of Palatine have issues, but Downtown Palatine is an awesome place to live and play.

Real smart. Steal commercial vehicles that most likely had company logos on them. Duh?
Sal March 31, 2014 at 02:45 pm
Should be charged with attempted murder. How many peoples lives did this drunk endanger beforeRead More crashing? How much did it cost in emergency response? Enough is enough.
Adam West March 30, 2014 at 09:23 am
Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.
Kelly O' March 30, 2014 at 06:17 pm
You don't have a lot of crime in Darien. Thank your lucky stars.
Dennis Robaugh (Editor) March 30, 2014 at 11:13 pm
@Bambi: OMGPD is a feature that recounts some of the more unusual crime stories in the Chicago-areaRead More suburbs. It's appeared weekly in your Deerfield Patch for about 2 years. @Adam West: I will email you directly with more information about Darien Patch, one of the Patches in the region that has been without a full-time editor for the last year.

Auroran April 4, 2014 at 01:58 pm
Actually, today (April 4th) she WAS fired. However, I find it a great example of ridiculous unionRead More rules that it took them this long to do so.
Tom RS. April 5, 2014 at 09:13 am
She will have cost all us taxpayers a lot of money when this is all done. Millions in lawsuits andRead More probably a million plus in repairs to the system. I could be wrong, but maybe a little more training and evaluation needs to be implemented before someone is turned loose at the controls...
Tom Lunde March 27, 2014 at 02:23 pm
What's this? No one stole anything from the Wal-Mart? Strange.
Bruce March 28, 2014 at 09:26 am
Tom, Under the Retail Theft heading, read the part by the second bullet down, where it saysRead More "...March 22 for Retail Theft at Walmart..." Just trying to help.
